VIEWING REGION: On-site only; Docs on the Dock, SEPT 12, 2022

Throughout history, rivers have shaped our landscapes and our journeys; flowed through our cultures and dreams. River takes its audience on a journey through space and time; spanning six continents, and drawing on extraordinary contemporary cinematography, including satellite filming, the film shows rivers on scales and from perspectives never seen before. Its union of image, music and sparse, poetic script create a film that is both dream-like and powerful, honouring the wildness of rivers but also recognizing their vulnerability.


Lunenburg Doc Fest’s ‘Docs on the Dock’ series is supported by Nova Scotia’s Department of Communities, Culture, Tourism & Heritage; DevelopNS; Lunenburg Foundation for the Arts; Star Power Atlantic; and the Town of Bridgewater’s Fresh Air Films.
